I know many young people who screw up their lives.
And then say,”I’m leaving everything to Imam!” There is nothing wrong in leaving everything to Imam but why screw up your life in the first place! Allah has given you aql - use it. Think before you act. Make sound decisions. Youth is a test. Don’t get carried away.

zaharaafra: Beautiful Poem-There is no life...
You werent and arent Muslim by coincidence
fizziklyfit: Remember that. Remember that Allah chose you to be Muslim. Allah wanted you to grow up around a Muslim community, or a community that didnt contain Muslims either. Allah chose you to live where you are, struggle with what you have, and think the way you do. You have a purpose. Your Muslim identity exists for a reason. And dont hesitate, Allah is there watching over you. ...

It's my boss's birthday tomorrow.
Everyone at the office has planned a surprise birthday party for him. We have got the decorations, the presents, ordered the cake and the other snacks, invited everyone. The only problem is that we aren’t sure whether he will be coming to the office or not!

Atheist: Can your Lord fit the entire universe into an egg without making the egg any bigger and the universe any smaller?
Imam Jafar As-Sadiq: I would like you to look at the sky, and at that bird in the sky, and at that tree, and at all those people who have gathered around us and now look at me.
Atheist: I see them all.
Imam Jafar As-Sadiq: If Allah can fit all of those things inside the tiny pupil of your eye, do you think that he cannot fit the universe into an egg?
A major problem we had got solved recently.
The solution came from an unexpected source, totally out of the blue. My mom said,”Don’t I keep telling you not to lose faith in Allah?”

The awkward moment when your boss sees that you are on tumblr.
We had a belated eid function at our place.
I didn’t attend it because I was at work. I really wanted to but I couldn’t leave work early as I already take a half day once every week for my Islamic classes. If I take any more half days I will lose my job! So, when everybody came to my house for the function, they were surprised to find that I wasn’t there. Now all the women from the community will think I am too...
